Facebook has apologized for its role in the deadly communal unrest that shook Sri Lanka two years ago after an investigation found that hate speech and rumors spread on the platform may have led to violence against Muslims.The riots in early 2018 erupted as anti-Muslim anger was whipped up on social media, forcing the Sri Lankan government to impose a state of emergency and block access to Facebook.The tech giant commissioned a probe into the part it may have played, and investigators said incendiary content on Facebook may have led to violence against Muslims.

Press Association Ward, whose Rams side take on QPR in the Sky Bet Championship play-off final at Wembley on Saturday, feels it is “not in his best interests or the interests of the international squad for him to travel to South America due to his extended club season”, the Irish Football Association said in a statement. Fleetwood right-back Conor McLaughlin has been called up and will join up with the national squad after Monday’s League Two play-off final against Southend. center_img Huddersfield striker Martin Paterson pulled out of the squad on Tuesday. Michael O’Neill’s side Ireland face Uruguay in Montevideo on May 30 and then take on Chile in Valparaiso on June 4.

He has one more game to do for us before he relaxes and goes to be an international,” Alexander said. “We knew there was interest from the manager a few weeks ago but we were fully behind that because he’s good enough. It’s an honour for the club to have a current international playing for us. “It’s great for Conor because he deserves it, it’s great for us because we want to see our players do well. “But he has to focus on Monday, and Monday only, then I’ll let him think about South America afterwards.” last_img read more
